What People are saying about this

Anton Kris
"These brilliant, nonlinear annual disquisitions on the state of psychoanalysis, gild their philosophic pills in marvelous comic displays of their author's erudition. Charming the reader as they illuminate the multiple problems currently facing psychoanalysts, they can provide profit and pleasure to a much wider readership than the local celebrants to whom they were originally addressed."--(Anton Kris, MD, Boston Psychoanalytic Institute)
Owen Renik
"Psychoanalysts tend to take themselves much too seriously . . . but Phillip Freeman has an antidote . . . he holds up a fun house mirror . . . ruthlessly surveying the field, mocking every sacred cow he can find and puncturing any balloon that has gotten overinflated. This he does with deadpan psychotic humor and irresistible charm. Lucky Boston! Phillip is the Shakespearean fool who illuminates, and thereby ameliorates, the tragedy."--(Owen Renik, MD, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute)
